Being Still and Praying Right Now Is THAT Worth It!







I thought about how Jesus was betrayed by Judas with a kiss; still he, Jesus, called him friend.  That's love that is difficult to comprehend, but I heard something in my spirit tell me that Jesus had a phrase in his heart at that time that said, "It's all worth it!"  Have you ever thought about that with your hardship or when disappointing things happen to you?  Have you said to yourself, "Yes, it's all THAT worth it?"  Some may say, "You mean that all that stuff you went through, all that pain, all that hardship...you mean to tell me all that is worth it?"  I'm here to tell you, because of God and His faithfulness, His greatness, and His goodness, I'm here to tell  you: YES!  It is all that worth it! And it will be all worth it.

think about it!

Right now for me it is so hard for me to be still.  I have a child and a family and a child on the way.  My mind is going miles per hour thinking of ways to provide for my children and family.  But I hear a still small voice inside telling me to be still and know that He is God.  I tell ya, that is difficult, but I'm learning that being still right now is THAT worth it with God.  I'm telling you, it's going to be all that worth it to wait on the Lord, to pray and trust on God, to lay all your burdens down on Him and be still.  Yes. That is it. And it is and will be all that worth it.

Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.(Ps 37:3)  Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.(Ps 62:8)

Trust in the Lord and do good;
    dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
    Take delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. Psalm 118:8

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
